Chelsea fans ecstatic as Antonio Conte confirms Eden Hazard return

Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of his side’s clash against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte confirmed that forward Eden Hazard is finally available for selection and he could make his first appearance of the season against the Foxes.

The Belgium international picked up an ankle injury while on duty with his country earlier in the summer but he made his comeback from injury for them during the recent international break, scoring one and assisting another in the 9-0 win against Gibraltar at the end of last month.

The 26-year-old’s fine form last season – the attacker scored 16 goals and provided a further five assists in 36 Premier League outings – was one of the main reasons the Blues won the title.

Chelsea supporters were quick to have their say on Conte’s comments via social media, and not only are they delighted about Hazard’s return, they think that Arsenal will be “shaking” ahead of the two clubs’ clash next weekend.
